Guys, this is not rocket science. All of these references are to
a network node.
For IRC, the network is the Internet.
For a cluster, the network is ethernet or IB or whatever.
In the Linux NUMA kernel example, the network is HyperTransport or QPI
If someone uses "nodes" when talking about a Linux cluster, the
meaning is pretty clear, even if the boxes are NUMA.
